Products, Prices and Training

The set of PronSci charts simultaneously offer an analytic and a synthetic view of English pronunciation. They comprise

  • a Rectangle chart organised along articulatory lines,
  • a Spelling chart (also called a Fidel), which shows the complete relationship between sounds and spelling in English, and
  • sixteen Word charts containing the functional vocabulary of English organised by parts of speech.

The full set can be seen here.


The PronSci charts can be used alongside any approach for teaching grammar and vocabulary, and any textbook.

They are available for British and American English. The British charts are suitable for all varieties of English within the mute-r family (including RP, Australian, New Zealand and South African) and the American charts for all varieties found in North America (including General American and Canadian). This is possible because teachers can assign their own speech sounds to the colours.

 

For Silent Way charts, see here.


The charts are printed on a tough polyester canvas using matte inks, so they can be seen clearly even if hung on a wall where a glossy poster would suffer from light reflection. They can be rolled for transport and storage.

Prices

The charts are available in different sizes suitable for classrooms with more or less wall space and classes with different numbers of students. In general, we recommend using the largest size of chart that you can fit onto the wall space available. The student numbers below are the upper limit we recommend for a given size, but in a large room, large charts are preferable even for use with a small class.

 

For English charts, the prices are as follows:

Set name
Numbers Price  
Small up to 5 students £110  
Medium up to 12 students £155   
Large up to 50 students     £215  
Extra large     40 or more students poa

Training

We run public training courses in Britain and France from time to time, including one-day introductions to the Articulatory Approach.

Course dates are listed on the News page.

 

For individuals or small connected groups, we also offer bespoke two-day training sessions in Britain and France, followed by recommendations for personal study, and 6 x 30-minute personal sessions over Skype coaching your practice in the class room.

Cost: from €390 (about £335 or $525)

 

If you are unable to attend in person, we offer a more limited remote training programme which combines personal study with 6 hours of Skype calls to introduce you and up to 3 colleagues to the approach and coach your classroom practice.

Cost: €360 (about £310 or $485)


In January/February each year, in our personal capacity, Roslyn, Piers and our colleague Arizio Sweeting moderate an online session called Teaching Pronunciation Differently for 5 weeks through EVO. We don't use the PronSci materials, but the theoretical background to the session is consistent with the PronSci approach.

We offer corporate training (for schools, universities, etc) anywhere in the world. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
